OpenAI is a company that offers pre-trained AI foundation models like Dall-E 2 (for image generation), GPT-3.5 and GPT-4 (for text generation), and Whisper (for speech-to-text conversion).

Some of these models power OpenAI’s personal assistant called ChatGPT, and third-party solutions like Microsoft Bing Chat and GitHub Copilot.

OpenAI offers access to its AI models via a centralized access mechanism. Still, customers can have a version of their models installed on-premises for increased security and compliance if they commit to a minimum spend. The unconfirmed amount is $100,000.
